Snake Removal and Control

Snakes are reptiles belonging to the suborder Serpentes. They are found in most parts of the world, but like cold-blooded animals in general, snakes are especially common in warm climates like those of our Georgia service area.

Humane snake removal and control is one of our most in-demand summer wildlife control services. Like all cold-blooded animals, snakes become more active as the temperature increases; so we get a lot of hits on our site for the search term "snake exterminators in Georgia" during the warmer months.

But most snakes are harmless and greatly beneficial, so there really is no such thing as a "snake exterminator." Good judgment and discretion are necessary when performing snake control.

Snakes of Georgia

There are approximately 40 species of snakes found in Georgia. But only six of these species are venomous (or "poisonous") snakes:

Most of our Georgia snakes are not venomous nor harmful in any way. But because many snakes have similar coloration, non-professionals often have a hard time telling them apart. For this reason, and because of the obvious risks associated with handling snakes, untrained people shouldn't attempt to trap or remove snakes themselves.

Call us instead. We know how to tell dangerous snakes from harmless ones, and we have the know-how to safely remove any kind of snakes from your property.

When is Snake Control Necessary?

Snake removal job in Georgia. Snake control is a skilled profession requiring specialized training. Kids, don't try this at home!

With non-venomous snakes, that depends on your feelings about snakes. Most snakes feed on rats, mice, other small mammals,and insects that can transmit disease or cause damage to farm or garden damages. Consequently, many people don't mind sharing their landens with a few non-venomous snakes in return for their help keeping the vermin populations down. So unless snakes really creep you out, there's no need to disturb non-venomous snakes. Unless you accidentally step on one, they'll do no harm and much good.

Some people are deathly afraid of snakes, however, and just want them gone -- no matter whether they're venomous or not. And of course, most people (at least most people with a lick of sense) don't want wild snakes slithering around in their beds, nor even in basements, living rooms, or sensitive outdoor areas like children's sandboxes and play areas.

No worries. If you have venomous snakes in your basement or elsewhere in your home or property, we can remove them. And if having even a few non-venemous snakes in your garden creeps you out, we can safely and humanely remove them and release them far from your home, where they won't bother you again. The snakes may be a bit insulted, but they'll get over it.

Venomous Snake Control in Georgia

Venomous snakes, of course, must be removed when they get too close to human-occupied buildings, farms, or recreation areas. The bites of venomous snakes can be fatal to humans, domestic animals, and livestock; so trapping venomous snakes is a job for professionals.

At Rid-A-Critter, all of our animal control technicians have advanced training in poisonous snake control. In fact, we're the region's leader in professional snake removal. We have fully-trained technicians living, working, and providing snake control services in the Metro Atlanta area, Athens, Macon, Roswell, and all of Northern and Central Georgia, as well as in the Birmingham, Alabama and Chattanooga, Tennessee areas.

Snake Control Gallery

Here are some pictures of snakes we've met in Georgia, as well as some of the non-toxic, environmentally-friendly snake control removal methods that our animal control technicians use to manage snakes. You can also click here to watch a video of Jeff removing a snake from behind the shutter of a home.

Our North Georgia wildlife-removal specialists are squirrel-proofing the roof of a house in Jasper this morning. They're installing a metal animal barrier over the edge of the roof under the shingles to keep squirrels and other animals out of the attic.
